Yes, the real 9C1 police cars had much heavier rear springs. These springs were to keep a decent ride height when the trunk was full of "cop stuff" - video equipment, traffic cones, ammo, junk, etc... Where you and I usually load the trunk, go somewhere and then unload, the police 9C1 is usually never unloaded.

Some people who tow boats put these Heavy Duty springs on their Impalas. If you bought the Impala rear springs, you can get your car level by cutting the fronts. Just go conservative; you can always cut more, but you can't put it back...

Hoosker, which corvette dress kit is that? LT4 or LT1? I know the LT4 is painted red like yours, but I didn't want to go through changing my valve covers to put the LT4 kit on. Any info would be nice. By the way, it looks nice!
